Daniel was fab, views were great.

This tour is brilliant. From our guide/driver Daniel to all the places he took us to get the best view of the New York skyline. The change from daylight to night gave us views that we would not have ordinarily have seen. Daniel was very informative and patient and even advised us what cake to get from Cake Boss. 5 stars all round :)

Far Exceeded My Expectations!

I was hoping to get a couple of city skyline shots. I didn't realise that I would get so many! We went to a number of amazing vantage points, with my favourite being the view from Hamilton Park. I can't recommend this highly enough. It ran like clockwork and the guide was so knowledgeable. Thank you!

A photographer's dream

Amazing! We travelled with our tour guide Millie out of Manhattan and across to New Jersey and was greeted with the most wonderful night time views of the skyline across the river. A photographer's dream. Stunning views of statue of liberty from quite a close location followed together with visiting and photographing a lovely memorial to 9/11 which simply has to be seen. Millie then took us to Carlos Bakery where we sampled scrumptious canolli and lobster tail (sweet pastries) before ending out tour high up on a hill in New Jersey with the best views of Manhattan laid out across the river before our eyes. Amazing. If you love photography you'll love this tour and even if you're not a photographer you'll silly fall in love with the views.

Our tour guide/driver Millie was great. She was very knowledgeable and it was a pefect clear night to see the skyline of NYC from NJ. We enjoyed stopping at the original Carlos Bakery in Hoboken NJ. It was the best frosted brownie I have ever had. I would highly recommend this tour.

It was great to see New Jersey and our guide was wonderful. It was raining, but he kept things lively and we still had great views of the city. I liked seeing parts of NJ and may end up vacationing their instead of NY (at some point).

We booked this tour to photograph...

We booked this tour to photograph the NYC skyline from the New Jersey side of the Hudson river. We picked the best tour / professionally run with a knowledgeable guide Mili. Royal City Tours have only recently offered this tour, it is a small group tour conducted with a driver/guide in an SUV no big tour bus We were collected on time at our prearranged pick up point our tour group consisted of 3 people this was impressive in itself as we have had other tours cancel when the numbers are low Mili our driver/guide was friendly polite and professional and very apologetic for the weather NYC was experiencing a summer thunderstorm the tour was going to continue regardless. Mili proceeded to take us on a fabulous tour of NYC and New Jersey explaining the history of New Jersey and NYC and giving us antidotes on what it is like to be a resident. the sites picked for photos were plentiful and spot on for the amateur and pro photographer alike even in the rain. Mili went above and beyond under adverse weather conditions to make this tour special and I would not hesitate recommending this tour to anybody wanting to see sites of NYC that the average tourist would miss.
